On Monday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a career-long anti-Semite with longtime associations with the Nation of Islam’s anti-Semite extraordinaire Louis Farrakhan, penned an article at Medium complaining about the media’s coverage of the connections between top Women’s March leaders and Farrakhan. Top Democrats, too, have come under fire, since they’ve been hanging out with Farrakhan for years, including one Senator Barack Obama. Members of Congress currently continue to defend association with Farrakhan.
Ellison’s article, instead of taking responsibility for association with and defense of Farrakhan, blames those who have the temerity to criticize that closeness. And naturally, Leftists like The Washington Post’s Elizabeth Bruenig — famous most recently for her suggestion that America try socialism — are celebrating Ellison’s take.
